Trichloroethylene (79016) is cited as not toxic at the levels found near degreasers and a die cleaning operation in the winding area of a plant manufacturing ignition coils. The epoxy curing agent dodecyl-succinic-anhydride, used in the epoxy molding area is also considered to be present at levels which are not toxic. Based on medical interviews with workers, environmental exposure in the past to trichloroethylene and dodecyl-succinic-anhydride may have been at toxic concentrations.
